Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent technological advances in food and human nutrition sciences have provided astable platform for development of new ingredients and functional foods that can assist in the management of several psychological and cardiometabolic health issues. Additionally, the adherence to traditional dietary patterns such as a Mediterranean or Japanese diet and reduced consumption of ultra processed foods have been proposed as the fundamental concept in management of these two important health conditions. Numerous studies of various designs (in vitro, in vivo, clinical trials and observational studies) have also supported and in some cases challenged the mechanisms of action of nutraceuticals, foods and some dietary patterns.

The aim of this Special Issue “Nutraceuticals and dietary patterns and their impact on psycho-cardiometabolic health” is to gather the innovative, current and high-quality research manuscripts (Original Research, Communication, Commentary, Review, Systematic Review, Editorial.) exploring the effects of nutraceuticals, foods and dietary patterns that may post impact on psychological and cardiometabolic health. Submission of manuscripts that relate to new conceptual ideas, mechanisms of action, clinical and observational studies are strongly encouraged.
